"I consciously choose this path". Ukrainian filmmaker Olena Apchel, who has been living in Poland in recent years, joined the Ukrainian Armed Forces

Olena Apchel admitted that she had signed a contract with the army

Ukrainian filmmaker, playwright, and activist Olena Apchel has joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine. After 4 years in exile, she returned home and could not stay away from the struggle of her people against the Russian invaders.

This conscious Ukrainian woman wrote about it on her Facebook page. She is currently undergoing training and participating in some cultural events.

"The path to the army was long and difficult for me, which made me even more convinced of its validity. Six months ago, after four years in exile, I returned to Ukraine on purpose to join our common struggle. Please forgive everyone whom I have refused to meet or ask to take on a project for these six months. I just needed time to adapt to the new reality," the director explained.

She promised to implement all her planned projects after Ukraine's victory, and now she asked for emotional, intellectual, and financial support.

"I am proud of my new brothers and sisters. It won't be easy, but I consciously choose this path because I want to go home to Crimea and Donetsk region, I want Kharkiv to survive, I want Dnipro and Zaporizhzhia to survive, I want to rebuild Volnovakha and Mariupol, I want all our people in all cities to be protected. And for this we have to fight. I also want to fight for a space to remember the dead and respect the living," the playwright emphasized.
